I've been out of the habit of sketching lately, but it's a habit that I want to get back into. I'm going to try to do a sketch a day for the next month. And I'll be selling them off on my Etsy

lonely hotel california

I was flown out to LA on Monday night to do the Craig Ferguson show on Tuesday. It was a quick 24 hour trip, but it was fairly enjoyable. When I checked in, the nice guy at the front desk happened to be a fan of the show, and he very kindly upgraded me to the most beautiful room I've ever stayed in. It was a shame to be by myself, but I said I'd take pictures (which don't do it justice). It was kind of a lonely trip, in comparison to being in NY last week, but the show was fun. 

Craig Ferguson is as kind as he is hilarious. He even gave me a little gift tote bag which had M&M's that were printed with his face! How do you even get those made?!  I'm truly enjoying all of this, and don't take it for granted for one second. 

Time for me to stop procrastinating and get back to sewing!

creating the collection

A big part of my working process is pure experimentation. I puzzle together the pieces, and then I play around with them by holding them up on the dress form or on myself and snapping a picture. I prefer taking snapshots because so many times I have done something awesome once, only to completely forget how I did it or what it was like!

I have plenty more of these photos, and I'll post them up later!
